  Broncos | Courtland Sutton to take it slow early    Tue Jul 27, 01:55 PM

Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (knee) has been cleared for training camp, but his reps will be managed until further notice, based on comments made by head coach Vic Fangio on Tuesday, July 27.

Footballguys view: That sounds about right. In a contract year, Sutton is ready to have the breakout season he was set to have last year before going down in Week 2 with a knee injury. If Teddy Bridgewater wins the starting job, Sutton will have to build chemistry with him. If Drew Lock is the Broncos starting quarterback, he'll greatly benefit from Sutton's presence. We'll see the Broncos quarterback competition play out in training camp and the preseason...then we'll have a better idea how it impacts the WR corps.

  Broncos | Denver QBs to split reps evenly for now    Tue Jul 27, 01:48 PM

Denver Broncos QBs Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater are expected to get an equal number of reps during training camp until a decision is made on which one will be named the starter, according to comments made by head coach Vic Fangio on Tuesday, July 27.

Footballguys view: It's a 50-50 battle between Lock and Bridgewater...at least that's what the team wants to push. Bridgewater may be the preferred quarterback as the team feels they can win a lot of games with him as their starter. Lock has higher upside, but he's not as good as Bridgewater based on what he did last year compared to what Bridgewater has done during his career. We'll see if Lock, in this totally 50-50 competition (wink), can impress more than Bridgewater and finally play up to the potential he's briefly flashed (mainly in 2019) as a pro.

  Broncos | Denver places three on PUP list    Sat Jul 24, 05:42 PM

Denver Broncos CB Essang Bassey (undisclosed), LB Baron Browning (undisclosed) and CB Duke Dawson (undisclosed) were placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Saturday, July 24.

Footballguys view: Browning could push Josey Jewell for playing time and contribute as a situational pass rusher, but he'll have to overcome a leg injury that the team had hoped he'd be over by the open of training camp.

  Broncos | Javonte Williams agrees to rookie deal    Fri Jul 23, 12:54 PM

Denver Broncos RB Javonte Williams and the team on Friday, July 23, agreed to terms on his four-year rookie contract. The full terms were unavailable, but the deal does include a $3.81 signing bonus.

Footballguys view: Williams has a chance to unseat Melvin Gordon from day one and dominate touches for a team that is going to focus on ball control and defense to win games. He is rising as high as the fourth round and probably worth it based on his higher end range of outcomes after the Broncos moved up in the second round to pick #35 to get him.

  Broncos | Baron Browning agrees to terms    Thu Jul 22, 04:44 PM

Denver Broncos third-round draft choice LB Baron Browning agreed to terms on a four-year contract with the Broncos Thursday, July 22, according to a source. The deal includes a $840,616 signing bonus but other financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Browning has a chance to replace Josey Jewell in the starting lineup, but he's starting camp on the PUP list, so it may be later than sooner. He can contribute as a pass rusher in addition to playing inside on early downs, so keep an eye on him in IDP leagues.

  Broncos | Courtland Sutton to be eased in    Wed Jul 21, 10:33 PM

Denver Broncos WR Courtland Sutton (knee) is hoping to be ready for Week 1 but is expected to see a limited workload during training camp.

Footballguys view: This should help break ties against Sutton in drafts and nudge folks towards Jerry Jeudy out of the Broncos wide receiver group. Jeudy should be better if Teddy Bridgewater wins the quarterback job, while Drew Lock winning would benefit Sutton.

  Broncos | Quinn Meinerz agrees on rookie pact    Wed Jul 21, 02:58 PM

Denver Broncos OL Quinn Meinerz (Wisconsin-Whitewater) agreed to terms on his four-year rookie contract Wednesday, July 21. Although financial terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed, he is expected to receive an $840,616 signing bonus.

Footballguys view: Meinerz was a Senior Bowl sensation, but still fell a little farther the the most positive buzz had him going. He can bury his opponent in short area combat, but is a project coming from a small school, likely to provide only injury depth for the Broncos this year.

  Broncos | Denver moves on from Damion Willis    Tue Jul 20, 08:55 PM

  Broncos | Noah Fant has the tools    Sun Jul 18, 12:27 AM

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant is 'one of the most explosive players' at the tight end position, according to an AFC scout, and the scout believes Fant will be among the best tight ends in the NFL in the next couple of years.

Footballguys view: Fant should go off of the board around TE7-8 in most drafts. He's in a stacked Broncos passing game without a quarterback to harvest the value of all of the talent, but could still set career highs if he avoids the nagging injuries that held down his production last year.

  Broncos | Von Miller at 94 percent    Mon Jul 12, 12:29 PM

Denver Broncos LB Von Miller (ankle) said he's about 94 percent healthy after ankle surgery. He also said he wants to play five to seven more years. 'My ankle is about 94 percent, Miller said. 'The 6 percent I got to get I got to get rushing the passer in practice with pads on, leaning on guys, guys leaning on me. I haven't rushed the passer in over year. Haven't played in a game in longer than that.'

  Broncos | Jerry Jeudy a breakout candidate    Thu Jul 8, 02:26 PM

Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy was selected as Athletic beat writer Nick Kosmider's team breakout candidate, saying that the second-year wide receiver has looked 'sharp' during offseason workouts.

Footballguys view: There is no doubt that we haven't seen the best from Jeudy. He struggled through his rookie season because of drops and poor quarterback play. Whether Drew Lock improves as a passer or Teddy Bridgewater starts, Jeudy could breakout in 2021. It's worth noting that Bridgewater and Jeudy showed instant and strong chemistry all offseason long during OTAs and mandatory minicamp. Jeudy will start on the outside with Courtland Sutton, a breakout candidate himself, coming back from the knee injury that cost him most of 2020.

  Broncos | Royce Freeman nearing the end in Denver?    Wed Jul 7, 03:26 PM

Denver Broncos RB Royce Freeman will likely need a quality training camp to convince the team to keep four running backs for the first time since 2017 or force the team to part with Melvin Gordon or Mike Boone, according to ESPN.com's Jeff Legwold.

Footballguys view: Freeman was supposed to be the main man for the Broncos when they selected him in the third round of the 2018 NFL draft. Instead, 2018 UDFA Phillip Lindsay outperformed him and won the starting job two years in a row. Last season, with Gordon added, Freeman barely saw the field. He's certainly on the roster bubble when the Broncos start training camp.

  Broncos | Javonte Williams the leader in backfield?    Tue Jul 6, 12:43 PM

Denver Broncos RB Javonte Williams will lead the team in attempts and rushing yards at the end of the season, in the opinion of beat writer Ryan O'Halloran.

Footballguys view: Williams is a talented back, arguably the best in the 2021 NFL draft, and that's why the Broncos moved up in the early second round to select him. He'll compete with Melvin Gordon in training camp, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him win the no.1 job. However, this has the makings of a RBBC and could be near a 50-50 split between the two. The Broncos are going to be a run-heavy offense and there is RB3/flex value for both backs.

  Broncos | Teddy Bridgewater, Drew Lock to work out    Sat Jun 26, 09:02 AM

Denver Broncos QBs Teddy Bridgewater and Drew Lock plan to get together for some throwing sessions in South Florida in the weeks leading up to training camp.

Footballguys view: The competition in Denver is 50-50 according to head coach Vic Fangio. During OTAs and mandatory minicamp, Bridgewater was steady while Lock's performance was up and down. We imagine that continues in training camp, and it will be the preseason games that determine who is going to start for the Broncos in 2021.

  Broncos | Amara Darboh joining Broncos    Thu Jun 17, 03:32 PM

Free-agent WR Amara Darboh (Panthers) agreed to terms with the Denver Broncos Thursday, June 17, according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Darboh was a third-round pick in the 2017 NFL draft coming out of Michigan. He was drafted by the Seahawks and made it one year there. Since then, Darboh has bounced around the NFL. He's got a nice size/speed combination but the Broncos are stacked at the wide receiver position and it will be tough for Darboh to make the 53-man roster.

  Broncos | De'Mornay Pierson-El headed to Denver    Thu Jun 17, 01:07 PM

Free agent WR De'Mornay Pierson-El (Raiders) on Thursday, June 17, will sign with the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: Pierson-El has bounced around the league since coming into the league as a UDFA out of Nebraska in 2018. He's played in the CFL, AAF and XFL in addition to having a few opportunities to impress in the NFL. Pierson-El is a long shot to make the Broncos jam-packed wide receiver room.

  Broncos | Jerry Jeudy shines at practice    Wed Jun 16, 10:05 PM

Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy is the 'main guy sticking out' among the receivers during minicamp, according to Taylor Brooks of KDVR.com.

Footballguys view: Jeudy looks like the star the Broncos thought he would be when they selected him in the first round of the draft last year. He's got a great connection with QB Teddy Bridgewater and the timing/chemistry is strong between those two. Jeudy does not have as strong a connection with QB Drew Lock, so we'll have to see who wins the starting job in Denver before getting too excited about Jeudy. Oh yeah, he'd look great catching passes from Aaron Rodgers...

  Broncos | Deshaun Watson setting sights on Denver?    Wed Jun 9, 02:40 PM

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson has been recruited by former teammates in countless players across the NFL this offseason, including former Texans teammate and current Denver Broncos DB Kareem Jackson. Appearing on Aqib Talib's podcast recently, Jackson repeatedly said Watson told him he 'wants to be in Denver.'

Footballguys view: Who knows what is going to happen with Watson, but he's likely done in Houston regardless of how his legal issues come to a conclusion. Expect Watson to be suspended by the league at some point, even if he's cleared of any wrongdoing by the legal system. Per the player conduct policy, Watson is subject to miss time by suspension per league mandate. Once he's out of hot water, Watson will be traded and Denver could be interested...unless they've acquired Aaron Rodgers by that time. Stay tune.

  Broncos | Drew Lock bothered by blister    Mon Jun 7, 02:29 PM

Denver Broncos QB Drew Lock (hand) participated in practice Monday, June 7, despite having a blister on his throwing hand. Head coach Vic Fangio said he is not sure how much if affected his throwing during practice.

Footballguys view: He's in a 50-50 battle for the starting job with Teddy Bridgewater after being handed the job last year. Lock was one of the worst starters in 2020, and Bridgewater gives him real competition for the top spot on the depth chart. Over the course of OTAs, Bridgewater has looked like the better quarterback (including 11-on-11 drills on Monday) while Lock still looks like his old self. This battle should go well into training camp, so Lock has to get healthy and get better to win the job.

  Broncos | Noah Fant misses practice    Mon Jun 7, 02:19 PM

Denver Broncos TE Noah Fant (teeth) did not participate in practice Monday, June 7, because he recently had dental work.

Footballguys view: Fant will be back in action soon enough. The upside and talent is there for Fant to one day be one of the best tight ends in the league. We'll see who wins the quarterback job between Drew Lock or Teddy Bridgewater, but no matter the starter we should see Fant be a favorite target.

  Broncos | Tim Patrick dealing with minor injury    Mon Jun 7, 02:18 PM

Denver Broncos WR Tim Patrick (hamstring) did not practice Monday, June 7, because of a slight hamstring injury. Head coach Vic Fangio said Patrick could have practiced if needed.

Footballguys view: No need to rush Patrick out there and aggravate the injury. Patrick was solid for the Broncos last year in the absence of Courtland Sutton. With Sutton back healthy for 2021, Patrick is more of a reserve no.3 or no.4 receiver on the Broncos depth chart.

Denver Broncos WR KJ Hamler said he added 11 pounds this offseason in hopes of helping his durability.

  Broncos | Drew Lock, Teddy Bridgewater to play lots in preseason    Tue Jun 1, 08:01 PM

Denver Broncos QBs Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater will get plenty of playing time in the preseason, according to head coach Vic Fangio Tuesday, June 1. 'Probably play them a little more in preseason than teams may play their No. 1 quarterback,' Fangio said. '... These guys need snaps and they need to play, especially when you have a young quarterback like we have in Drew and a new quarterback like we have in Teddy. Hopefully we'll get them a lot of snaps and the decision will be made easy.'

Footballguys view: It's a 50-50 competition between Lock and Bridgewater this offseason. We're not going to get any real separation between the two in OTAs and mandatory minicamp. However, when training camp hits around August we should see this competition get even more heated. The preseason games should be the determining factor when it comes to the Broncos starter for Week 1.

Denver Broncos WR KJ Hamler (hamstring) recently tweaked his hamstring and is expected to take it easy in practice for the foreseeable future, according to comments made by head coach Vic Fangio on Tuesday, June 1.

Footballguys view: Hamler is a pure speed guy, so a hamstring injury can be especially concerning. We are a long way from the start of the regular season, so Hamler will have plenty of time to get healthy. He should be good for the start of training camp. We love his talent (speed, speed, more speed) but he's the no.3 wide receiver on a run-heavy offense which will limit his fantasy value in 2021.

Denver Broncos TE Albert Okwuegbunam (knee) is making good progress in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to head coach Vic Fangio. His status for the start of training camp is uncertain at this point.

Footballguys view: Okwuegbunam injured his knee around the halfway point of the 2020 season. He may not be himself until that time this year. Don't be surprised if he begins the start of training camp on the PUP list. The Broncos don't have much behind starter Noah Fant at the tight end position, and they could use Okwuegbunam near full strength ASAP.
